Charles Martin


Martin and Weinke debuted with 2008’s “the dominant hand,” which The Tulsa World predicted to be the “cult classic of our generation.”

Despite rumors that the team were splitting up after only one book, the pair have committed to three books in three years starting with 2010’s “Edward and the Island.”

The dark comedy set in heaven follows the struggles of a group of children trying to adapt to an Island created as an experiment for a new universe.
